    I noticed it is $36 on Amazon. A lot more money, but is it worth ordering from Diabolik? Will it come down in price or go OOP quickly? I want to order, but wondering if I should pull the trigger?

    I went with Diabolik...they also usually ship Grindhouse titles out like days sometimes weeks before Amazon's scheduled release date.

    The guys at Grey Matter Art recently put a nice print on sale for the film:

    If there was one thing I didn't like about this release, it was the art. Well....scratch that!

    Embossed slipcover...

    Looks nice!

    Sears sent me another random $5 coupon (I got one a few days ago, which I used on Deadly Eyes), so I pre-ordered this with my points for $16.97.

    Worth mentioning, I sold off my DVD for $22 about a month or so ago. :banana:

    Hope we´ll see a review soon.
    Not ordering until I know it´s free of the "LVR" video noise.
    The UK disc has a massive dose of it.

    You mean the Shameless disc? Yeah, that was barely acceptable. But I'm not worried about Grindhouse screwing this up. So far they've hit it out of the park with the 4 titles they've released so far. I believe they worked on this restoration themselves if I'm not mistaken. I am surprised, though, that a review hasn't popped up yet bearing in mind that the street date is a week from today.

    There was talk of them not sending out screeners, though I know a few people that have them in hand. My copy is on its way -- can't wait to check it out!

    Hopefully Blowitoutahere has a 4th of July sale, then I'll grab this.

    What was the situation with their previous 4 releases? I don't recall if there were reviews posted before the street date but I also don't remember wondering WHY there weren't reviews - CH seems to be the first title that hasn't had one (yet). If Grindhouse restored the film themselves I don't see why they wouldn't want reviews out early but if this was one of those LVR jobs then this "blackout" would make sense :)

    Got this today and it looks great!

    Just had a quick flick through it tonight, it has the uncut version as well as the newer edit minus the animal violence, choice of audio tracks - either original mono or remixed stereo.

    It looks as good as it probably ever will, there are of course obvious flaws in the source material but that's to be expected.

    This is definitely the one we've been waiting for and without even watching the 2nd disc I can say it was worth the wait. :)

    I remember watching this for the first time on VHS back in the 80's, from a terrible 3rd or 4th generation copy that flicked into black and white in places... to see it now like this on Blu-ray is just stunning. :D I think this is the 4th original version I've got now, also on VHS, Laserdisc and DVD.
